Western Sahara: Saharawi Citizens Injured Due to Landmine's Explosion in Tokat Region

Smara — Several Saharawi citizens injured Thursday due to the explosion of Moroccan landmine in the region of Tokat in the occupied city of Smara, Western Sahara, informed the Saharawi Ministry of Occupied Territories and Communities Abroad.

The exploding mine caused the injury of Abdalwahab Ould Bakar who wounded in the head and Al-Ouali Ould Bakar in different parts of his body.

Since the military invasion of Western Sahara, Moroccan occupying forces have planted the internationally banned mines and have not ever made efforts to protect the unarmed Saharawi citizens from its threat.
